Webster family searching for answers after 2 dogs die suddenly

Family is left wondering if it was an accident or foul play

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - To the Greenwald family, their dogs Hazel and Ubu were family.

"She was just she was so friendly, and he basically was the perfect dog,” Megan Greenwald said.

So when they got sick this past Saturday, Megan and her husband kept a close eye.

"Saturday at some point, they both they ingested something. Saturday night, Hazel started throwing up,” Megan said.

The Greenwalds say it didn't get better as time went on.

"Around 10:30 p.m., we brought her to the emergency vet. Within 2 hours, we had to put her down."

Not long after, Megan says Ubu died. The Greenwalds say they were devastated and started asking questions.

"The vet really didn't have a straight answer, except asking us if she could have been poisoned,” Megan said.

The couple says they’ve searched for other answers, but haven’t found anything. Then, they found out something peculiar happened to the next door neighbors involving their dogs.

"My boyfriend came home and found a note on the front door. What the note said was, ‘shut your dog up’, with a colorful word included,” neighbor Christine Bailey said.

Bailey said at first, she thought it was a joke, but now, she's second guessing that.

"All the sudden, the light bulb went off and we said yeah, that's when that happened,” Bailey said.

The Greenwalds say the Webster Police Department is looking into it, along with the Humane Society, but they know an investigation won't bring back their dogs.

"It was so needless. The dogs were young. They could have lived,” Megan said.
